Picking up Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War on anything else other than PlayStation will see you at a disadvantage. PlayStation players are already receiving Zombies Onslaught as an exclusive mode for a year, and now Sony has announced new advantages for playing the game on their consoles.
The last few years Call of Duty games have included exclusive PlayStation features (including Survival mode on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare), but the latest benefits seem a little unfair. PlayStation Players on Black Ops Cold War will quite literally be able to level up faster than any other platforms. Here are the multiplayer bonuses from the PlayStation Blog:
- Battle Pass Bundle Bonus: Unlock new gear and goodies even faster. PlayStation players that purchase the $20 Battle Pass Bundles will get an additional 5 tier skips. That’s a total of 25 tier skips!
- PlayStation Party Bonus: Teamwork makes the dream work. PlayStation players that play together in parties receive +25% bonus weapon XP. The bonus still counts when playing with cross-platform teammates.
- Double XP Bonus: PlayStation players can look forward to exclusive Monthly Double XP events (24 hr duration), so prepare to boost your rank.
- Extra Loadouts: Be prepared for any scenario. PlayStation players get an additional 2 loadout slots, ready for customization. Available when Create-A-Class unlocks upon reaching Level 4.
There is no better time to switch to a PlayStation for all the added bonuses, which seems to be exactly what Sony is hoping for. Extra XP, more loadouts and additional battle pass skips are the best parts of the multiplayer experience and will certainly give players a huge advantage.
On top of this, Activision also announced progression will be shared across all 3 titles: Warzone, Modern Warfare and Black Ops Cold War, further demonstrating the benefits of playing on PlayStation.
Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War will be available on November 13 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
